hair: Larry Sims / stylist: Rachel Zoe Studio / makeup: Fiona Stiles
I love this girl. We've worked together for about 7 years now, and I always have a good laugh when we get ready. She is wickedly funny, insanely beautiful, deeply kind and a true joy to work with.
When I got to the hotel before the premier, Gabs showed me her outfit and we started talking hair and makeup. Larry said he was going to do a slicked, deep side part and a bun, and it all felt so simple and chic that I thought a red lip and clean face would surely be the way to go.....bronzy skin, a structured brow and flirty lashes (I used lashes on top and bottom for a doe eyed look). She looked unfussy, but still incredibly elegant.
I used the bronzer on the eyes to create depth instead of shadow, and skipped liner all together so the eye wouldn't feel too made up. I wanted to keep the eye all about the lashes, and the look about beautiful skin and a statement lip. Using lashes on the top and bottom opened up her eyes, and the strong brow balanced out the strong lip. Just a little bronzer on the cheeks gave definition without looking "blushy". Even though there is a strong lip with this look, for me the look is all about radiant skin. It always starts with the skin.
